Boatman Busts Two to Vault Into Chip Lead

Big O

Michael Romanos raised the size of the pot in early position and was called by Barny Boatman in the small blind and Rob Hollink in the big blind.

On the {6-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} flop, the players all checked. Things would get very messy on the turn, however.

The dealer dropped the {9-Diamonds} on the board, and Boatman bet pot. Hollink called and Romanos re-potted all in for about 360,000. Boatman moved in and Hollink called for a bit under 500,000.

The {q-Hearts} fell on the river giving Boatman a huge win with {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}{10-Clubs}{7-Spades}{3-Hearts} for a set of tens that rivered the nut flush with no low on board. Hollink's cards went into the muck, and Romanos showed {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} for a turned straight, which was crushed on the river by Boatman, sending him to the rail as well.
